Hi,

I'm sorry if this question is pathetic, but I am a complete novice.

I am designing my very first website. I have uploaded pictures to the site, but when I view my site the pictures appear as red crosses. How do I rectify this? I have tried changing the format of the pictures, but it isn't helping.

Can somebody point me in the right direction please?

Thankyou

Helen

Without knowing the tags you are using for your images, I can only assume either the pictures were uploaded into the wrong directory...or you have the tag wrong. Whatever folder you FTP into, you need to make sure the tag points to that folder. Example:

<img src="logo1.JPG"> would be my tag if the picture named logo1 was in the same directory as my index page. You would change it to point to a different folder if your picture isn't in the same directory as the index. Say your picture was FTP'd to a folder called "pics", then you would change the tag to <img src="pics/logo1.JPG"> or you could also give the whole URL to the picture instead <img src="www.yourpage/pictures/logo1.JPG"> Or something like that.

Check out some of the sites listed above for HTML help. There is a lot available online if you do a search, too. :tazz:

Or please post the tags you are using, so maybe we can help more.

Hi there,

What is your website name?

And you have uploaded the images to your website. Have you put all your images in a folder in your site?

Like http://www.yoursite.com/images/ (then the photo).jpg / gif etc?

What sortware are you using to create your site?

Try using this html code...

<img border="0" src="http://www.yoursite....es/yourpic.jpg" width="150" height="112">

Wow, i'm not sure about tags!

I am using Microsoft Publisher, they have an 'easy template' to follow. Then i've just clicked on add picture, so I have no idea about tags.

Is that any help, or does that make me even more stupid than before?

Thanks for your replys anyway, I'm going to check out those sites and try to learn something!!

Whats your website?

And, publisher is not a very good web building software.

Download microsoft frontpage express which is a free web building software and its so easy to use and build web pages.

Download it below...

I'd warn you to stay away from Frontpage. Some ISP's do not support Frontpage extensions. I'd check out something like CoffeeCup HTML editor.

It would help if you gave us the url of the image, or images. And the source code of the webpage. You can find that by clicking view, then source on IE or view, then page source on Firefox.

Ive viewed the html source code of your home page and you have included the image...

<img src="logo.jpeg"/>

Just to be sure, if you make a folder on your ftp server called images and store the logo image in there it will be...

<img src="images/logo.jpeg"/>

How about just using NotePad? There's no help there, but if you have all these templates your never going to learn how to really do it! And, the templates might actually make it harder!

OMG! I didn't realize that there wasn't any replies made since 2005! :)
